Weekly Report 1/7/09

Post by Tony Zann » Wed Jul 01, 2009 9:38 am

Off the rocks good bream remain on offer, with Lighthouse, Plomer and Diamond Head producing some terrific fish. Tailor numbers have been reasonable, with early morning and late afternoon sessions producing fish to a kilo or better. This action should further pick up as the water clarity improves, assuming another fresh does not eventuate. Blackfish remain an option with Point Perpendicular containing good numbers of fish, while drummer numbers and quality steadily improve from most headlands. Better results have been achieved from headlands only marginally affected by the fresh.
Off the beaches, the significant erosion remains the biggest challenge, with most of the more favoured local stretches of sand being inaccessible or unfishable at high tide. A real shame, as there have been some solid bream, together with plenty of school mulloway and even a few reports of chopper tailor returning after an extended absence – great news for tailor enthusiasts and also those keen on chasing larger mulloway. Tides and lunar conditions this weekend are ideal for chasing jewfish. No prizes for guessing what bait you should be using. Salmon reports have trebled from last week.
In the estuary, blackfish numbers continue to improve with the breakwalls beginning to fish well. Bream have picked up a little, although the full moon may see them a little shy at night. Pretty well anything will catch fish in varying numbers, but that delightful substance, mullet gut, fished on a 1/0 chemically sharpened suicide hook with minimal lead, is deadly. Live yabbies will also yield results and will also produce some nice blackfish.
For outside fishos, the leatherjackets are back in big numbers throughout the 60-80m bracket. While annoying given their penchant for terminal tackle, there is no doubting their culinary excellence. Best bet is to make sure there is plenty of wire on board. The close reefs are producing some excellent snapper, with those converted to plastics achieving the better results.
